I think, starting next week, we’re going to make all authors use this documentation template, or something better with every submission.

This means that we’ll no longer be accepting simple .txt files. We highly encourage you to use our provided help template, but if you have something even better, you’re, of course, free to continue using that.

@Jeffrey Just an idea, but what about implementing some code highlighter (e.g. http://alexgorbatchev.com/wiki/SyntaxHighlighter ) the default PRE tag doesn’t look that good. I know we can do it on our own, but it’ just a thought I wanted to share :)

Jeffrey,

If I only include a rather extensive and well formatted PDF file, for example this documentation teaser. Can I only include the PDF , or is it mandatory to use the documentation template you suggested (or other good looking HTML Help Template) ?

As long as your version is at least as good as the template, we don’t mind.

Though – I want to encourage all of you to use our template if possible. It makes the buying process as consistent as possible for purchaser.
